Oh No! Bae Is Married?! Jesse Williams And Other Hollywood Hunks We’re Sad To Know We Can’t Have

Can you remember the first time you laid eyes on your celebrity crush? That fine piece of man sauntered across your television screen and afterwards, you had to find out everything about him. So you hopped on Google, got to clicking, ended up on Wikipedia, only to find out that he’s married. Dang! Not that you ever really thought you would be able to make your crush an actual boo in real life, but a girl can always dream, right?

Well, here’s a list of 15 of Hollywood’s hottest men who we always have to remember are very much taken:

Jesse Williams

He’s good looking, educated, an activist, and seems like the type who would tell you that you look beautiful even with that bright pink bonnet on. However, the only woman who has the pleasure of knowing this for sure is his wife, Aryn Drake-Lee. The two met in NYC while Jesse was working as a teacher. He told USA Today that she’s been down with him since the very beginning:

“She’s been with me through all different facets of my career. She’s stuck with me through thick and thick and thick and thin.” The couple wed in 2010 and have a daughter named, Sadie.

Denzel Washington

It’s one thing to accept the fact that both you and your mom share Denzel on #ManCrushMonday, but it’s a whole other thing when you realize that neither of you can actually have him. This June will mark Denzel and Pauletta’s 32nd year of marriage. As most couples do, the two have their ups and downs, but according to Denzel, divorce isn’t even an option. Pauletta agrees, despite whatever rumors come and go about her Hollywood hubby.

“He has and knows he has that stability in me as his wife. That’s[sic] gives him strength, regardless of if he misuses it. I can’t dwell on that. But I do know that gives him a great platform to go and fly.”

Michael Ealy

Don’t get us wrongKhatira Rafiqzada is nothing short of gorgeous, but her marriage to Michael Ealy still breaks our hearts. We honestly thought he never talked about his love life because he was secretly waiting on us…but alas, the two wed in 2012, and Michael later revealed that they have a son together named Elijah. Dang Michael! Thanks for giving us time to heal from the heart break…or nah. We still love you though. 

Scott Foley

Have you ever wanted to steal Jake from Olivia (on “Scandal”)? We sure have! However, his wife, Marika Domińczyk, is the lucky one who was able to steal his heart away in real life. Scott wed the Polish-American actress back in 2007 and the two welcomed their first child in November of 2014.

Omari Hardwick

If there’s anything we learned in 2014, it’s not to mess with Omari Hardwick’s wife. After finding out that he’s taken, some of his fans (and foes) took to Twitter to bash his wife’s looks. Hardwick wasn’t having it and got on social media to share his own thoughts.  Omari explained, “I wish all of you could experience celebrity for a week to understand the LEVEL of ugly in certain diseases (called human beings).” He continued on by talking about the loss of their son and how much he loves those that care about him. Well Omari, we can’t be mad about you being married. You’re way too fine to be single for long.

David Beckham

Victoria, girl, you slay each and every time, but if you ever need us to take David off of your hands, we will step right up to the plate. However, we know that won’t happen, because this July will mark their sixteenth year of marriage. The couple has four children together: Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper. It’s hard to believe that they are a day over 25, or that David will hit the big 4-0 this year! We’re enjoying watching this soccer hunk age like a fine bottle of wine.

Boris Kodjoe

There are several reasons why we watch “The Real Husbands of Hollywood,” but we’d be lying if we said Boris Kodjoe wasn’t the main one. Can you blame us? Not only is the man fine, but he’s fluent in English, French, German and can speak a little bit of Spanish. But let’s be honest, does Boris even need a love language to have you swooning? Probably not. As much as we love looking at him, we know that no one looks better by his side than the lovely Nicole Ari Parker. The two met on the set of “Soul Food” back in 2000 and tied the knot in 2005.

Morris Chestnut

When we met Morris, he was a fresh-faced 22-year-old in Boyz n the Hood. However, by the time we really processed all of his greatness and fine-ness in The Best Man, he was married. Morris wed Pam Byse back in 1995, and it’s a decision he doesn’t regret. He recently shared why he chose to propose to his wife with Essence. Morris explained, “…when I met my wife, there were a lot of qualities I was paying attention to. I knew that she would be a great mother just for how she cared for her nephew and her family. She respected her mother and she respected her family and those were some of the initial qualities that I saw that I thought would make her a great partner.”


Don’t get us wrong, we’re happy that Skateboard P found love, but we were really hoping he’d hold out for us. Nevertheless, we’re glad he’s “happyyyyyyy.” After all, he worked extremely hard to win his woman! In an interview with Oprah, Pharrell revealed, “She didn’t answer half of my text messages (at first).” But after years of kicking it in the friend zone, Helen Lasichanh finally gave him a chance.

Mario Lopez

Okay, who DOESN’T love Mario Lopez? Honestly? Is it the deep dimples that complement his smile? Or those arms that look like they give great hugs?  It’s hard to watch him on “Extra” and not have your mind drift to dreamy places, but Cloud Nine bursts pretty quickly when we remember that he’s married. In 2012, Mario tied the knot with Courtney Laine Mazza, and it has been smooth sailing ever since.

Brian J. White

Brian J. White is not only a daddy, but a very happy husband. Brain married Paula Da Silva in 2010 and they welcomed their first child just last year.

Channing Tatum

With the release of Magic Mike 2 this July, we know that everyone is ready to see more of their hunky “boyfriend in their head,” Channing Tatum. However, Channing will probably spend the summer kicking it with his wife, Jenna Dewan, and their daughter, Everly. Jenna and Channing met on the set of the movie Step Up back in 2006, and began dating shortly thereafter. The couple proved that they were inseparable and decided to take that walk down the aisle in 2009.

Nate Parker

Nate Parker is literally the man of our dreams. He’s an awesome actor, an activist and a great husband! He’s obviously so great that his wife, Sarah De Santo, cried after seeing him fall in love with someone else on-screen in Beyond The Lights. After viewing the film, Sarah admitted to feeling a little taken aback, however, by the end she explained to Parker that “I just was happy to know that I get that guy every day.”

J. Cole

Okay, so J. Cole isn’t married just yet, but we might as well cross him off of the future boyfriend list. Cole and Melissa Heholt met back while studying at St. John’s and have managed to make it work ever since. The couple has yet to comment on the engagement rumors, but Heholt was spotted shopping for wedding gowns recently.

Lance Gross

In November, actor Lance Gross welcomed his first child with his fiancée, Rebecca Jefferson. The two have been together for quite some time now, and plan to jump the broom pretty soon. Since we’re super excited for them, we guess we can let Lance go…
